Workshop on the Web
I subscribe to Maggie Grey's Workshop on the Web and recommend it most highly.
It's published quarterly exclusively on the internet. In each edition there are workshops provided by well-known tutors from all around the world - and available at any time so there is no pressure to complete a workshop on a given day or before a time deadline.
The techniques covered include machine embroidery, hand stitching, and a wide range of mixed media and there are opportunities to explore the use of metals and the latest developments in our field. There are step-by-step details for the techniques and ideas are given for using them creatively ... all a great deal for £20 ...!
From the current edition which was published in June, I have every intention of trying Sherrill Kahn's workshop on Thermofax printing - something I've been wanting to try for ages.
And ... there's a special offer! If you join now, there's a promotion - you'll receive Lynda Monk's and Carol McFee's book 'Stitching the Textured Surface' free - wherever you live in the world. I've got it and it's a really interesting book.
If you're still not sure about this idea, you can investigate the website via the link above and you can even try a free taster to see whether it is for you or not.
I really hope you decide to join..!
